to steve sedgwick in london with the latest. good day to you. >> very good day it to you. there wasn't just one thing that sent this market up yesterday. i think it was a whole most of matters. including the fact that we could be closer to ending that stalemate, including the fact that the housing starts were the best we've seen in six months and also the fact that across the board, we saw some really good earnings from some real big bellwethers in the u.s. corporate scene. >> if you can quickly apple one of those bellwethers with a blowout quarter, do you have some of those details? just amazing numbers. >> it really was a blowout and it sent the shares up to a new record high. the profit more than doubled to $7.3 billion. the revenue surged 82%. and it was the best quarter in the company's history. they put out on to the market 20.34 million iphones. what was expected was 17 million to 18 million iphones. ipad 2s were also flying off the shelves. >> i added my name to that list, as well. steve sedgwick, appreciate it. >>> some of the recent or rick is getting it testy in the debate over r

of murdoch's u.s. properties we want to get a check of business with steve sedgwick in london. the first question is, what will happen to rupert murdoch's companies in the u.s.? is anyone else in jeopardy right now, including his son? >> reporter: there are real question marks about where the buck stops. many people thought rebekah brooks, a close confidente of rupert murdoch, would be safe but she's the latest member of his empire to fall on her sword. real questions about u.s. titles and whether they'll be tainted as well. those titles include the fox cable network, "the wall street journal," which has a strong editorial representation, and of course dow jones news who i worked for at one stage in my career. a lot of questions about those titles and what kind of governance news corp. will look like going forward. lots of question marks about the independence of the news corp. board and whether we'll see moves on that front as rupert murdoch is forced to relinquish some power. >> the u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton in athens, greece, voicing strong support for that country, incl

this morning. cnbc's steve sedgwick is live in london this morning. good morning, steve. >> good morning to you. the plan, according to nicolas sarkozy and the french banking association is to roll over greek debt from short turts to longer-dating maturity which would buy them time, not only for greece but essentially the french banks as well. a little bit of conflict of interest. who are they trying to help out? now, the ecb has said the we don't see this as a potential default. in fact, unless all the rating data agencies see, this woe don't have a problem. the dow, for instance, up 5.4ch. that was the best performance since july 2009. 648 points. back to you. >> all right. thanks so much, steve. live for us in london this morning. le. >>> still ahead on "way too early," you hear exxon and oil spill and you hold your breath. that's what they're doing after a spill in montana appears worse than originally believed. we'll have the latest there. >>> and you hear the word os joey chestnut and hot dogs and you try to hold your lunch. the reigning world champ holds another fourth of july title but

a second bailout. steve sedgwick is live for us in london. it's hard to keep up with which country is going down next. >> it is incredible. and once the country has gone down and got their bailout, you expect them to come off the agenda for a little bit. but a second bailout could be necessary. the problem that moody's is citing is that private investors are being put off investing in government bonds in the meantime because they would be made to bail out. and putting pressure on the other agencies, as well. as you would expect, the irish finance ministry is very angry about this saying it's completely odd with the recent views of all agencies and the progress we are making is there for all to see. back to you. >> all right, steve, it continues in europe. thanks so much. >>> meanwhile, british prime minister david cameron is joining calls for newscorp chairman rupert murdock to withdraw his takeover bid for british sky broadcasting. a scandal that scotland yard now says may have targeted as many as 4,000 people. nbc's stephanie goss is in london for an update on moisture dough dock. >> the

closer. for more on what all this means, we bring in cnbc's steve sedgwick live in london. good morning, steve. >> good day to you. >>> moody's joining s&p in saying, look, guys, if you don't raise this debt limit, which you reached on may 16th anyway, at $4.3 trillion, there's a threat you're going to lose your aaa rating, which means people are not going to want to hold what's been seen previously as ultrasafe bonds. what boosted the markets before that was ben bernanke, who's been appearing on capitol hill and actually said the economy is in worse shape than expected, saying the possibility remains that the recent weakness may prove more persistent than expected and that deflationary risks might reemerge, implying additional policy support. that additional policy support could be some form of qe3, more quantitative easing, and people assume after qe# in june, that was it. so that was tantalizing to the markets, which rallied on the back of that. >> thanks, steve. >>> the front of the "the wall street journal" this morning saying raiders put u.s. on notice. this would be an unpreceden

around. and by the way, a lot of your predictions headed true. congratulations on that. steve buscemi got nam natuominn. anything else jump out? >> kyra sedgwick continue gdid nominated and she was the winner last year. so that's probably the biggest snub of the morning to come -- the show is also in its final season. typically people like to get nominated -- like to give nominations for shows in their final season. >> any surprise to how many of the nominations were for that much havemovie series the kenne? >> a shocking number. it had a pretty troubled back story, but i believe i saw at least two or three. that's a huge coup for the kennedys. >> and in the comedy series which was the last category announced, big bang theory, glee, modern family, office, parks and recreation, 30 rock. usually suspects there. >> i'd go back to drama and say the big coup there was game of throwns getting nominated for hbo. that's a show that's not necessarily for the emmy voteth voting audience. it's fantasy which usually gets snubbed. i also think in the comedy actress category, melissa mccarthy getting n

. a lot of people talking about kyra sedgwick when she won the emmy for the "closer" and this is the final season. they want to know if she is snubbed because of the final season, but no, because look at steve correl of "the office" who was nominated and i think he will win. and in "parenthood" there is a person who could have been nominated for every character in that show, because it is fantastic week in and week out, and if it is not nominated next year, there will be outrage. >> i have to tune in to this. >> and "glee" was nominated and big news coming out between yesterday and today that some of the main principle actors are going to be leaving the show. >> the stars. >> and leaving a of the third season and those actors would be lea michele, and cory monchief, and why are they leaving? well, the author said it is a storyline that the kids are in high school and if you keep them for seven year, it is ridiculous and when you get rid of them when their time in high school is up, you are criticized for that as well. >> and chris just won an emmy or golden globe. >> yes. >> and when you d
